EDM 69 Beverage


I am so enjoying being with my daughter and granddaughter! And though she doesn't have a scanner, if I play a bit with her PhotoShop Elements, I can get a half-way decent image of my sketches!! YEAH!!

So here's my beverage -- and a big learning curve! The image is from Wet Canvas and while it contained some gorgeous color and a silver spoon , no matter how much I tried, my silver spoon looked like some plastic utensil from my granddaughter's playset. So I cropped it out! I believe this is supposed to be a glass of water with lemon and ice ... and while I've gotten some of the reflections fairly decently, my ice cubes need some help! LOL

But it was fun, and sure stretched my abilities! LOL

Awesome painting, Lin! Personally I think adding in a spoon would detract from the mood of the composition. This is really a neat painting, love those colours!

What great picturs! Especially the drink one...that seems like a new style for you to play with. What fun! How old is your granddaughter?--Carol

If this makes you feel better about your reflective surfaces, John Ruskin recommends that you stay away from anything shiny for a long while during the learning process.
